The Mandin Award from LDAA

The Learning Disabilities Association of Alberta (LDAA) is calling for nominations for the Mandin Award, open to Albertans aged 4 to 21 who are living with a learning disability or ADHD. Applications must be received by the LDAA by May 15, 2014.

The Mandin Award was established in 1991 in memory of Maurice, Susan, Islay, and Janelle Mandin. Maurice and Susan Mandin were teachers with a sincere interest in children with special needs. Their daughters Islay and Janelle were students.

The Mandin Award is up to $400 and is given to assist an Albertan between the ages of 4 to 21 years of age who is living with learning disabilities or Attention Decit Hyperactivity Disorder. The award may be used to support the costs of attending summer camp, social skill development courses, tutoring, and assessments. Disbursements of the funds are made directly to the program or service, or to the award recipient upon receipt of an invoice.

Applications must be received by the LDAA by May 15. More information can be found at
